Recipe Notes

  • *Don't use quick oats or the cookies won't turn out the same.
  • **1 cup chocolate chips (or more if desired) can be substituted for raisins.
  • Try adding a slice of bread to container with baked cookies to keep them soft and moist, just don't lay it directly on cookies or it can make those it's resting on soggy.
